Our Hydro Gel uses 8% Azelaic acid plus plant derived brightening and soothing ingredients to help reduce the appearance of blemishes, brighten skin and fade uneven skin tone, smoothen out skin’s texture and improve acne marks. The star ingredient azelaic acid is safe to use long term for persistent acne and is safe during pregnancy. Tremella extract otherwise known as Snow mushroom has been added for its hydrating and skin rejuvenating properties. Tremella’s particle sizes are smaller than those of Hyaluronic Acid, giving Tremella the ability to hold 5 times more water than hyaluronic acid, which makes it penetrate the skin more easily. This powerful formula is also fortified with Blueberry and Green Tea extracts for their potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties to help cool irritated skin and prevent damage. Panthenol and Aloe juice provide extra soothing benefits for your skin while Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a derivative of L’ascorbic acid without the irritation and instability provide extra brightening for skin.
Like any acid, it can be irritating which goes away with continued use. On application, some itching, burning, tingling or stinging may be experienced, which is normal. If you feel itchiness, burning, or stinging that doesn't go away, stop use immediately. You can also reduce frequency of application or skip it for a day. Avoid harsh or irritating products while using this gel. Do not use with other exfoliating products.
Start by putting a small amount on the inside of your arm for a patch test. If you do not experience any irritation, you can put a thin layer on your face or affected areas once a day for a few days. Once your skin adjusts, use up to twice a day. If you have sensitive skin, start slow by applying once every other day to see how you handle it.
